Research Data Systems

There are several electronic data systems and applications that might be used in the conduct of Human Subjects research at UF; some are required for all studies, others are only used as applicable or as needed. While there may be some overlap of basic study data elements (e.g. Study Title, Principal Investigator, Sponsor Name, etc.), each system has unique data that reflects that system’s unique primary purpose.
